Many people suffer from their own insecurities about missing, broken, and decayed teeth in their smile. They tend to avoid smiling and feel as if they are not fully living life to their fullest potential. They also avoid eating their favourite foods due to the pain and discomfort of chewing with damaged teeth or even without any teeth. If this sounds like you, our team at Blue Sky Dentistry want you to know you are not alone. There is a dental treatment for these issues, known as dental implants. In Belfast, our team is making sure our patients know all their options when looking to replace missing teeth.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants in Belfast are drastically changing people’s lives by restoring their smile’s aesthetic and functionality. The treatment has become incredibly popular for people missing teeth in Belfast. Dental implants require a minor surgery where a dental professional will place a titanium post directly into the jawbone. Your dentist will decide if you need time to heal before placing the prosthetic teeth on, or placing them on the same day, known as same day teeth. During the healing process the bone will grow around the post, in a process known as osseointegration. This will help promote bone growth and reduce any sunken appearances on the face.
How many teeth can you replace?
Each post can hold up to 3 new artificial teeth, known as a bridge. This is a great option for people wanting to replace multiple teeth at once. Or you can replace just one, which is known as a crown. You will regain complete functionality of your teeth as soon as the new teeth are placed on the post. You can bite, chew, smile, and live fully restored with dental implants in Belfast.
